no, you're not being unrealistic....I do,however, think you might be on a bit too much Lialda, sometimes the meds can cause some symptoms.
I say stick with the cortenemas nightly till you're normal and then start tapering.
You might then be able to go to the cortifoam for maintenance.....
How soon after you go to the every second night did you bleed? after a week? two weeks? the next night?....
Hang tough...this is a good option and worth trying.
Keep us posted.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
